Goodbye Taiwan, you beaut lil’ island

It’s been about six months since I moved from Tainan, Taiwan to my new home here in Portugal. I’m finding the move to be a bit of a trip. The change in pace, culture, language, friends, family and the obvious restart to my art practice has been a humbling experience.  But, before I jump into the european life, I just wanted to give a little send off to my time in Taiwan. If you haven’t been there, I’d highly recommend it. For me it was magic everyday.

The possibility of stumbling upon a Daoist ceremony is very high.

The fashion is practical for the climate

And Pole-dancers on Jeeps send off dead men.

Thank you Tainan.
